Kabul – Staff Reporter:

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Kabul on Monday to hold talks with Afghan officials, according to Afghan media reports.

The Afghan peace process and Washington’s plans to pull out all US troops will likely come under discussion.

Washington announced plans last month to pull out all US troops by Sept. 11, with Afghan officials saying the Taliban stepped up attacks across the country following the announcement.

Earlier today, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) United Kingdom (UK) General Sir Nicholas Patrick Carter called on Gen Bajwa and discussed with him developments in the Afghan peace process.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan is considered a key regional player in the Afghan peace process.
